Humanitarian Aid: Coronavirus

Question for Department for International Development

UIN 903061, tabled on 10 June 2020

What assessment she has made of the effect of the covid-19 pandemic on the accessibility of UK humanitarian support to people who need it.

Answered on

There is no doubt that coronavirus restrictions have made it harder to reach those that need our help, whether because of disruption to supply chains or personnel. Our support for the UN’s Global Humanitarian Response Plan remains crucial. Through this, we support humanitarian access by securing the continuity of supply chains to the vulnerable, including refugees, Internally Displaced People, and host communities.

Our job is to get where others can’t.
